Shockwave Therapy - What is it?
Shockwave Therapy, or Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy, aka ESWT, is a well-known and effective treatment for tendon disorders including plantar fasciitis and most sources of tendon pain. This includes tendon pain in the Achilles, Hamstring, Patellar, Gluteal, and Elbow (tennis elbow).
Treating injured soft tissues such as these, especially tendons like plantar fascia when conditions are at a chronic level, after an injury, Shockwave Therapy provides one of the safest and most effective treatments so far. ESWT has been clinically proven to trigger a metabolic reaction at the injury site and is a recognized alternative to invasive surgeries or steroid and drug injections.
ESWT speeds up the healing process by directly stimulating the injured area using soundwave, which creates a metabolism reaction, as mentioned earlier. This treatment method increases blood circulation at and around the damaged tissue.
Shockwave Therapy is non-invasive and the healing modality is almost immediately noticed with reduced pain. This natural pain relief which is triggered by stimulating the natural healing process has resulted in a high rate of success in the care of these hard to treat, frequently chronic and very painful injuries.
